The latest award follows a recent annoucement that David had also been awarded the 'Brass Band World' solo CD of the year.

Paul Hindmarsh from British Bandsman commented: "Parallel Realities is yet another significant contribution to this remarkable player's legacy and we congratulate David Thornton on yet another very-deserved award."

David commented “I’m absolutely thrilled that the disc has been given recognition, especially given the incredible nature of the artists on the other nominated discs. It’s always somewhat of a risk to record or perform a project that strays from convention and I still feel I’m only scratching the surface of what’s possible within the electro-acoustic world. However, I’m delighted with the resulting combination of repertoire and hope that people enjoy listening to it!"

"I want to emphasise the point that producer, Adam Goldsmith is as much the artist on this project as I am. His hard work and expertise have produced a natural balance and texture between the live and pre-recorded elements, which is absolutely no mean feat in this repertoire context. Thanks to all the team at World of Sound for their complete package, recording, design and patient post-production.”

For any conductor and every audience, Foden’s Band is a musical Magic Carpet. It continually takes the listener to places that few other ensembles rarely even approach Howard Snell
